  1. After years of detailing everyone else’s vehicles, I was able to share some love with mine. Finally was able to do a single step correction and ceramic coating I used the cquartz UK and topped it with Reload.

  2. New to the forum, just brought home my 2018 Silverado LTZ Redline Edition. No stranger to modifying my vehicles and just ordered in a set of Morimoto XB Headlights as well as a Range AFM disabler. Trading in my 2018 Civic, big step up!

  6. They are all like this. Ford, Dodge, Toyota, Nissan. High strength steels which allow them to maintain crash worthiness but reduce weight, aluminum all over the place, plastics, etc. Aluminum engines and transmissions aren't anything new either. Your 2014 had an all aluminum engine and aluminum trans and transfer case, and before then they had them too. Also stock these trucks can come from the factory with 33 inch tires and have no clearance issues whatsoever. The 20" and 22" wheels use P275/60R20 and P275/50R22 which are both a 33 inch tire. And this applies to non Trail

  7. Took advantage of the crazy used car market and traded my 2014 LTZ with 84k miles for this 2021 1500 High Country with the 3.0 Duramax. Only have 400 miles on it but loving it so far!

  17. Fuse #26 driver side ip fuse block. Labeled peps/hvac. Alternate Method (without Scan Tool) Note: Do not operate any HVAC controls while the HVAC control module is calibrating as this may interrupt the process. If interrupted, improper HVAC performance will result. Ignition OFF/ Vehicle OFF. Remove the HVAC control module fuse for a minimum of 10 s. Install the HVAC control module fuse. Start the vehicle. Wait 40 s for the HVAC control module to self-calibrate.

  18. I wanted to come back to this thread with a definite answer for blowing black smoke on 93. Earlier in this thread I said I leaned it out and it did help some. But I mainly run only E85 which burns reall clean. So when I would go on a road trip I would load up with just 93. And the black smoke is still there. Not as bad as stock PE tables but still there. So Lucas287 I don't know if you saw the thread on HP forum about "How far do you let you EOI drop". Lots of good info on that thread. I can post it if you like. Anyway I started logging my SOI. Which

  19. There were two plugs mentioned and shown in pics on page 2. The plug JoeD49 asked about (circled in the pic he posted above) is for the trailer TPMS receiver. There is a round plug behind the bumper to the left of the hole behind the license plate (also shown on pg 2 and being referred to in your posted quote above, but I needed to zoom in to see it) that is for the camera.

  23. My 2018 5.3 6spd hit 60k. I purchased it 4/19, 2 years and it's been run a lot. All over CA, across the country a few times. Towing my boat... Up mountains, in the woods, etc. I changed the transmission fluid and filter again. First time was at 34k. I would consider this extreme. I did the thermostat delete @34k when I did the fluid change. This time in Putnam new pan in with drain. Now I can drop more often so I can get the fluid fresh. The last time I used yelco fluid that I got for $4.50, but this time out when you use Valvoline because after $4.20. I chan

  25. Any claims about an L86 being incompatible with 87 octane fuel is nothing but rhetoric and hearsay. I've data logged A LOT and tried many different octanes and timing advance curves. My educated opinion is that it can, and will, run just fine on it. You won't bust a ring or piston if your sensors are working. That's what knock sensors are for. The stock sensor calibration is VERY sensitive. Fill with 87, the knock sensor will immediately start pulling timing if it's over 3* of knock. The spark tables will oscillate between the low and high octane tables at any given rpm/load and extrapolate ac

  27. Today I'm replacing a foundation vent to my crawl space. A neighbour reported seeing a rat run across her deck so I'm making sure all access points in my home are secure. The existing vent is attached over vinyl siding so I thought I'd take a Youtube refresher on working with vinyl siding while having my morning coffee. I was astounded by the DIY junk on this and related topics! Just because a person can post to Youtube, it doesn't mean every home repair experience sets an example to be shared! DIY videos can be entertaining and most can be helpful. I just feel bad for the novice lackin

  30. So much fail in this thread I can't even, the practice of vehicle production hasn't changed much over the years and vehicles are constantly getting better and stronger. They have for the past few decades been about lighter materials while adding strength. Stiffer frames, more robust axles and suspensions, lighter stronger materials for the cabs and tougher plastics (shoot, they use plastics on intake manifolds). These trucks are more rigid yet you are seeing flex? Complains about tire size then says he means width when questioned on it. Thanks for clarifying a true 33" means 12.5" width other

  33. Last winter I finished a 275 SF room in the basement for my wife to use as a home office and exercise room. We liked the LifeProof LVP enough to use it down there as well, with a thin underlayment to gain a little bit of padding/insulation over the concrete. My wife took the kids to visit her family for a weekend and I spent Friday afternoon and most of Saturday & Sunday alone just installing the floor and putting in the baseboards. You can score them with a utility knife and snap it. So the ends aren't terrible. But the long walls that need to be cut along the entire length are a pain.

  34. Flipped the thermostat in my tranny yesterday. Going to work is a 37mi trip and temp never got above 137. Only hit that when I sat at a gate for a while. Even on the interstate it didnt go above 127.

  38. Still check in every now and then but just not posting that much anymore. Had a work provided vehicle for a couple years and wasn't driving the Sierra all that much. Changed jobs recently and I'm back to driving the Sierra daily. It's still running well but probably getting close to needing new brakes (on the original pads and rotors still). Has developed a noticeable pulse so I assume the rotors are warped. Other than needing a good cleaning, it's sill a solid vehicle.

  39. Help us out a little. What year truck, what transmission? How many miles? Has it ever been serviced? What kind of noise? Clunk, clack, click, whining...some clues would help.

  40. The market for Transmission repair is forecast to reach $259.8 million by 2025. OE lubes often are equal to the performance quality of the cheapest aftermarket oils. It does mean just because GM installed it its the best lube, it only means its good enough for GM. Look at all the problems with the ATF on the 8speeds.

  41. IMHO Bob there is no such thing as 'normal' conditions. All service is extreme. Ever since GM put thermostats on transmissions. Did my first drop, filter and fill at 50K and the OEM fluid was done. I've since done the pill flip, done an 8 quart pan with a drain plug and several drop and fills. Every 25 K I do 8 quarts.

  44. Wife and I passed through some years ago headed to the Cape and we learned that my name in Boston does not contain an "R". "Yes, how may we help"? The desk clerk says. "We'd like a room". "Sign in please" and we do. Then she hands me the key card for the room and says, " Matin if you need anything please, call down. " I smile and say, "Martin"!. That's what I said...."Matin" "Miss, there is an R in my name" I correct. She smiles back..."Not in Boston" What could I do be laugh back. Then I asked her to

  45. Well good news today I stumbled on a truck with the options I was looking for plus a couple at a dealership in another state. Called them up, gave them a deposit and Wednesday I get to go pick up a 2021 Sierra AT4 6.2 carbon pro! I used the inventory search on GMC.com to find exactly what I was looking for.
